Bangalore: Swinging into action swiftly as an off-shoot of the Times Round Table held on Saturday, the BCC and police have relocated eight bus stands in the city.

On Residency Road, of the three bus stands slated to be shifted, the one in front of St Joseph’s Commerce College has been relocated to Commissariat Road, between Central Mall and Garuda Mall.

Ashoknagar police said this was a long-pending demand because after the road was made one-way, the bus stand was to the right of the road which was technically incorrect. It is now situated on the left of the road.

On Tuesday, the other bus stands that were shifted include ones at Koramangala I Block Jakkasandra, Chennamma Vrutha on Ring Road near the Deve Gowda petrol bunk, Airport Road near the water tank, Jayanagar I Block, Yeshwanthpur near the market and at Rajajinagar ESI area.

All these bus stands have been relocated to 150 to 200 yards from their original location. This, say police, is to prevent pile-up of traffic.

Plan of action today: Seven more bus stands are slated for relocation on Wednesday. These include bus stands on Bellary Road, near Hebbal flyover, Sarjapur Road, Sanjaynagar Cross road, Sanjaynagar-Bellary Road junction, Old Madras Road near Benniganahalli and Residency Road near Devatha Plaza.
